Throwback Thursday on Tuesday Tips. This one is my favorite! So simple!!!!
I have several people asking me on how to even start with color when you are not sure? My answer is always look at old master for color inspiration. One of my favorite color person is Robert McGinnis. I love how simple his color choices are.
And photoshop really make this easy. I use the pixelate tool to get a simple color pallete. Then I color pick it and make it more saturated. Ta Daaaa!!!! My color pallete is ready.
Try it out, it’s pretty neat!
I love Loubi!
More Louboutin illustration. Can’t get enough of them. Love them all.
Tuesday tips — highlights
To make your object color stays fresh and juicy, you need to add color to the highlight. If you just add white, it’ll become dull.
The good rule of thumb is
* warm object — cool highlight
* cool object — warm highlight
Happy Valentine’s day!!!! Treat yourself with something nice. I’m loving this Miu Miu Lilium.
on my Facebook page, Jernej Gracner asked me on “How do you get a more rough edge but still have a nice line (for instance: Chocolate Cake piece)?”
The answer to the question is very simple; I actually only use a handful of brushes I created on photoshop. For most of my personal illustration that I’ve been posting on my blog and tumblr, I only use one brush that I created to sorta mimic a pencil/chalk line, because I like the organic feel that it gives.
And I made a tutorial on it on my site a while back but never post it on tumblr. So here it is. And I guess you can call it “Throwback Thursday on Tuesday tips!!!!” ha!!!!!
Tuesday tips — My favorite Photoshop brush to sketch and paint
I like brushes that have jagged edge. It makes it look a little bit more organic and less computer-like, which is the look that I prefer. Don’t get me wrong. I love the perfect computer look if it’s done right. ie. if it’s done in perfect Illustrator straight lines. Otherwise, it just doesn’t look that good. So for sketching and painting, I use a jagged organic brush that I simply make in CS. Nothing fancy, just use one that already comes in CS and I just change the setting of “Shape Dynamics” and “Scattering”.
This is the one that I use the most.
Also remember to save it in your TOOL PRESETS, so you don’t have to keep adjusting the setting as you change brush.
Tuesday tips — Rules of cropping
YES — 2/3 or 3/4 down
